Sherlock Holmes: The Musgrave Ritual

Join us for a new site-specific Sherlock Holmes mystery at historic Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum in Pelham Bay Park. An ancient family document hidden on the grounds of a beautiful country home hides a sinister ritual that only Sherlock Holmes can unlock – but some secrets might be best left buried. Together, we’ll explore the gorgeous 19th century mansion and surrounding gardens on a quest to solve a deadly mystery. Adapted by Tal Aviezer from the story by Arthur Conan Doyle. A co-production of Red Monkey Theater Group and M&M Performing Arts Company.
